Some may well argue that Faith No More are the perfect soundtrack for 2015. Why? Well, we don’t know where you are right now and what your current situation may be, but we bet there is either a thin (or much thicker) layer of discontent spread evenly across what you are going through. It’s often tricky to place a finger on exactly what the issue is, there are so many contributory factors that lead to the levels of discontent and anger that we witness on a day-to-day, it’s more a feeling than a pinpointed, specific problem. Suffice to say, there are lots of angry people about, they are EVERYWHERE.
 
Did someone say quarter life crisis? Well, yeah, maybe…
 
Album Review - Faith No More ‘Sol Invictus’
In exactly the same way that Faith No More fuelled the angst in our formative years, the San Francisco outfit have returned with the sort of epic anger levels as if eighteen years haven’t FLOWN by. The music has grown, it it more polished and more considered than before, however, the underlying venom has not. Faith No More are experts in conjuring up a sensationalist alternative reality; during their absence many have tried (and failed) to come close to transcending.
 
Still, eighteen years is a long time to have waited for ‘Sol Invictus’. If we’d have known that the bands last release ‘Album Of The Year’ (way back in 1997) was to be their last for almost two decades we would have paid far greater attention to the sub-text in that work in an attempt to decipher what was going wrong to see the band disappear for so long; talk of creative differences (and exhaustion) saw the band drift into the shadows, but that didn’t mean for a second that they slowed down individually. Patton was especially busy (and experimental) as a solo artist during the hiatus, however, we must say as the frontman of Faith No More is where he seems most at home and ‘Sol Invictus’ only acts to fortify this argument. The foreboding nature of each and every track on the record will have you instantly gripped, ESPECIALLY if you are a returning fan from the 80’s and 90’s. 
 
As we mentioned before, many have tried to reproduce the foreboding but most have failed. Each and every track on ‘Sol Invictus’ is worth a large amount of listening time to truly immerse oneself into Mike Patton and co’s unique outlook on the darker side of the life everyone leads. 
 
Best song - Cone Of Shame’ stands out as our favourite, that right there is vintage FNM.
